Researchers used a cohort of 179 women with overweight or obesity, ages 18 to 45, and found that those who participated in a lifestyle intervention embedded in a home visitation program lost an average of 0.7 kg at 12 months, compared with women in the usual care group who gained an average of 2.1 kg. The findings in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine showed that those in the intervention group were also more likely to achieve 5% weight loss than the usual care group.
